From rockers/guitarists Paul McCartney and John Mayer to rappers Lil Wayne and Pitbull (in a tandem with pop act Ke$ha), many artists have lately announced their upcoming concert tours. The latest addition to the list is Grammy Award-winning band Mumford & Sons, who has revealed they are soon to trek across the U.S. and Canada for a 25-date summer tour.
Dubbed "The Summer Stampede Tour", the British folk rock band will kick off their live performances on May 21 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta and will play until June 20 at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado. The tour will resume on August 2 at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal, Quebec and will finally conclude on September 14 at the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in St. Augustine, Florida.
Previously, the Marcus Mumford-fronted band was announced as the headliner of the three-day Lollapalooza music festival at the Grant Park in Chicago. However, there seems to be some conflict in the schedule as the August 2 to 4 music fest coincides with the band's Osheaga Festival show.
Prior to their forthcoming North America tour, Mumford & Sons has just completed a handful of shows in the U.S., including a performance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in February, with sibling act Haim as front act. The English quartet is reportedly working on the follow-up to their Grammy Award-winning album "Babel".
